Welcome and thank you for your question!

In order to leave the state, you have to have permission of the court. So, talk with your probation officer or court contact and ask for permission to travel for work. There really should be no problem in them granting your request.

To answer your question: you will be able to travel internationally with permission of the court. At this juncture, you do not have any criminal conviction.

It has been my pleasure to assist you today with your information needs. It is my goal that you are satisfied. No expert can promise you an answer that is favorable to your circumstances. But I will do my very best to explain the legal principles that are related to the facts you’ve described so that you can better understand the “why” of things.

Thanks for the response. If I am understanding your reply, I can travel internationally for work if I am granted written permission from the court and/or my probation officer. Is this mainly because I don't have a conviction as the charges are pending due to deferred prosecution? Legally, will I have any trouble travelling to China or any other country with pending charges?
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
Each country is different with respect to their entry requirements. You will have to check each one that you may travel to.

See, for example, the inadmissibility criteria of Canada: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/inadmissibility/index.asp

If you have difficulty locating the criteria for a particular country, simply contact that country's embassy located in the U.S. and they will be able to assist you.

Thanks for the reply. From your comments, if I have permission from the court and/or my probation officer than travel outside of US is permissible. However I would have to verify with the respective country that I will be entering (ex. Sweden or China) to see if I would be allowed into their country and the best way of verifying this would be contacting the respective embassy.
Expert:  JB Umphrey replied 4 years ago.
Yes, that is 100% correct.
